We presented to you the videoclip made for one of the themes of the recent reference displayed by Sr. Aye in [Miga01] "Ceros y unos"
Edited by Nökeö (http://www.nokeo.net), the videoclip show us a telephone conversation between an alien, from Urano, and a Human. Alien talk about differences things that he don´t understand from our Planet Earth, and others thing that he think there are cool.
Mimic is an experimental video directed by Lucio Arese with music of Yu Miyashita.
An hyperdense block of objects driven by music collides, collapses, spread into random formations and disintegrates at frantic speed.
Shot into a cattle market, the film rides the verge between nonsense, random noise and organic, structured audiovisual events, enhancing the plastic clashes of a digital inserted foreground into an old and rusty environment.
Humorous, lunatic, cartoonish, nightmarish, Mimic is an attempt to reach a complete unity between music and motion picture in an epoch of violent changes.
The metaphorical impressions that the word 'Vortex' conjures up may well draw the intrigued listener
to undertake a 'sonic inquiry' on the 'Kármán vortex street effect' phenomenon. In fluid dynamics, a
'Kármán vortex street' is a repeating pattern of swirling vortices caused by the unsteady separation of
flow of a fluid around blunt bodies, causing them to vibrate. If the vortex shedding frequency is similar
to the natural frequency of a body, it causes resonance.
The compositional idea of the "Kármán Vortex" album lies in the interaction between several sonic
fields, imagined as an 'experimental orchestra' where elements such as noises, pulses and vibrations
blend together forming a rich and complex sonic tapestry. The shape of the opus evolves through a
constant transformation and timbric manipulation, and does without traditional elements as melody,
harmony and rhythm. Rather, it reassesses and revaluates them by putting forward actions, shapes,
weaves and 'energy vortices'. All these contribute to generate a sonic image.
The "Kármán Vortex" album is inspired by a collaboration with composer and Aeolian Harp maker
Mario Bertoncini. The "Kármán Vortex" project was unveiled at the 50th Nuova Consonanza Festival
in Rome (Italy) on November the 17th, 2013.
